If “on the go” better describes your life, you may consider this nifty little gadget to keep your workouts going. Activ uses the power of an isometric (no joint movement) muscle contraction. Activ gives you immediate feedback as to how much pressure or how hard you are contracting a muscle for an interactive and progressive workout. Compare to your last workout to push yourself each day. Activ can gauge over 200 pounds of pressure opening the door to a wide range of strength levels and also amazing for those with an injury where joint movement may not be indicated. Let the app drive you with coaching and games that incorporate quick workouts as minimal as 5 minutes.
